Bergamot - Citrus bergamia
It has a very sweet, light, tangy, citrusy aroma.
Traditionally used to calm nerves, it is naturally antibiotic and a disinfectant. It blends well with Black Pepper and Rosemary to freshen up any home or work space this spring.
Membership and professional liability insurance is pro-rated throughout the year.
The minimum requirement is mal-practice insurance for any body treatments you provide as a professional. The specific coverage may change from province to province. Also, the insurance may need to cover basic blending and product creation for custom treatments provided for home use.
We look at each applicant on a case by case basis. We require your course transcripts (if available), and copies of your Aromatherapy certificate, CV and references. If you currently belong to other aromatherapy associations we require a copy of your membership. Copies of certificates from courses/workshops you have completed in Aromatherapy or related fields. Also, you may be asked to complete 2/3 case studies or write the CFA National Exam. In some cases if you have not been practicing for a considerable time we may recommend a re-fresher course.
Send us an email to find out more about the events and online meetings that occur every month within our committees. We have committees for membership, legal, research, education, & media/marketing. If any of these appeal to you give us a call. Or, you can join us on the forum and get to know some of the members and find out what they are doing as well.
CEUs are Continuing Education Credits. Currently, you are required as a CFA professional member to receive 12 CEUs every 2 years. These can be attained by joining ongoing education courses in aromatherapy schools, reviewing research papers or writing articles and submitting them to the CFA for posting & review, by volunteering on one of our many committees, or providing public education classes on aromatherapy of your own. If you are not sure if a course you are taking as a student or wish to teach to the public arena is applicable email us so we can review it.
